Central's Shepherd Leaders

Central's Shepherd Leaders

Jesus Christ is the foundation of His church (I Cor. 3:11) and the Central congregation strives to be followers of Christ as the Chief Shepherd. (I Pet. 5:4)

Our local servant-leaders are godly men who are dedicated to helping each one of us to be more like Jesus each day.

​We are blessed at Central to be served by three highly qualified evangelists, who preach the gospel.

Jody Broyles  began working with Central in January of 2008 after preaching for nearly 20 years in Lakeland, FL. He brings to   Central a unique ability to blend and welcome all of the various age groups. Jody is a talented preacher of God’s word. He and Melisa have three adult sons and seven grandchildren.  Jody's creativity and lessons demonstrate his great love for the Lord's work.
Colin Williamson moved to Ocala in 1968 and has worked with the congregation ever since. After 40 years of sterling service, Colin semi-retired in January of 2008. He and Betty continue to be very active in the work at Central. Colin conducts personal studies and new member orientation classes, assists in the future planning and growth, and preaches occasionally. His invaluable experience and presence serves as a strong foundation upon which we continue to build.
 
Wayne Yancey is retired from the Marion County School Board as a high school teacher and baseball coach. Wayne and Trudy have  ten children and both bring a vast wealth of knowledge in dealing with young people to Central. Wayne's "coach-speak"  and down-to-earth-style are anchored by a firm grasp of the Bible and a daily walk with God. He preaches periodically and also  serves as one of our overseers.
